Year of the Cheetah

Cheetahs are Africa's most endangered cat. In 20 years Cheetahs could be extinct.

Every time you visit The Living Desert, you help save endangered species. This year, our events are focused on celebrating and conserving the majestic cheetah. These endangered animals need your help today. You’re invited to join us in the race to #savethecheetah.
